Roof Repair vs. Roof Restoration

Make the Best Decision for Your Home With Larson & Keeney Home Services

Your roof serves as a shield against the elements to protect the overall structural integrity of your home and is a staple in the appearance and aesthetics of your home. At Larson & Keeney Home Services (LKHS), we know that as time passes, wear and tear can negatively affect your roof, prompting homeowners in Southeastern Wisconsin to consider roof repair or restoration. But what’s the difference between a roof repair and a roof restoration? In this discussion, we will explore what’s included and the benefits of a roof repair or restoration so you can feel confident about choosing which service is best for you.

What’s Included in Roof Repair Services?

Roof repair addresses specific issues on your roof, including leaks and damaged shingles. It’s the go-to option for localized damage that hasn’t compromised the roof’s overall integrity. While cost-effective and swift, it’s often a temporary fix until a full restoration. In many cases, a repair acts only as a bandage before needing a complete roof restoration service.

The Benefits of Roof Repair

Low Costs

Roof repairs typically cost less than a complete restoration since they require less material and labor—making it a budget-friendly option for homeowners seeking roof improvements.

Quick Services Times

If you’re only in need of minor or isolated repairs, they can be done quickly to prevent any issues from escalating.

Preserves Your Home’s Beauty

Making repairs as soon as you need them will keep your home looking as spiffy as ever—maintaining the aesthetics and appearance of your home.

What’s Included in a Roof Restoration Service?

Roof restoration is different from repair because it requires more comprehensive work to rejuvenate the entire roof surface. Restoration focuses on large-scale repairs that eliminate your roof issues and damages. This process encompasses cleaning, repairing, and resealing the roof down to the underlayment, which is ideal for roofs with significant wear but not yet due for replacement.

The Benefits of Roof Restoration

Increases the Lifespan of Your Roof

Restoration can increase the longevity of your roof and increase its lifespan, delaying costly replacements.

Enhances Exterior Aesthetics

A restored roof gives your home a fresh, appealing look, bolstering its attractiveness.

A Complete Solution for Multiple Problem Areas

Our holistic approach to roof restoration includes addressing multiple issues by applying protective coatings.

Adds to Resale Value

If you plan to sell your home in the future, a roof restoration can boost your curb appeal and add to the value of your home.

Schedule Your Roof Repair or Restoration Service

Deciding whether you need repair or restoration services will depend on your roof’s condition, budget, and long-term goals. For minor issues, repairs offer a cost-effective solution, while restoration caters to roofs with significant wear. If you’re unsure about what service is best for you and your roof, schedule a consultation with Larson & Keeney Home Services. Our team of roof experts ensures your roofing needs are effectively met, safeguarding your home’s longevity and appeal.
